Daylight Savings Time is Going to Kill Us

I cannot tell you how much I hate changing the clocks.  It takes a least a week of misery before you get used to it.

Turns out the Daylight Savings change also costs us money and it’s trying to kill us.  According to a new study, losing just that one hour is going to cost the U.S. $434 MILLION.

That’s an estimate of lost productivity, and the costs incurred from the increase in heart attacks (??) and the increase in injuries in mining and construction jobs.

The cities with ZERO economic impact are all in Hawaii and Arizona . . . because they don’t participate in Daylight Saving Time.  They may just be on to something.

Twin Falls didn’t make the national list but Boise is set to loose just over a million dollars.  You can see other city ranks here.
